Grace's men's yoga workshop has been my first yoga class. I did not know what to expect, in my mind yoga was all about stretches and relaxation. I was a bit reluctant to attend, but my wife encouraged me, and I am happy that she did. The class was much more active than I was expecting.
Grace achieved a good balance, with moments when I was pushed to my limits and more relaxing moments to let me recover. It says much about Grace's teaching style that not having done yoga before, I could follow her instructions without doubt and without really needing to look at her movements.
For most exercises she gave us alternatives depending on how much we wanted to push ourselves. She went around correcting our posture to ensure we were correctly positioned. I highly recommend Grace's classes and I would be keen myself to be part of a regular yoga class.

I love Grace's yoga classes. She is a passionate and experienced instructor who caters for beginner to advanced level students. Grace shares her knowledge of yoga to help every participant get the most out of each class. Her hands on approach has helped me to improve my yoga practice and understanding and allowed me to reach more advanced poses. I'm so glad we have Grace here to teach yoga in the Hedland community.

Yoga with Grace is a dynamic and energetic class that leaves you feeling very relaxed and aligned. It is 90 minutes of pure bliss - pure ‘me’ time and it enables me to face the week ahead with a positive outlook.
Grace is a sensational teacher. She has in-depth knowledge of Ashtanga yoga, and this, coupled with her perceptiveness makes for an excellent yoga experience for beginners and experienced practitioners. I love the music that Grace plays during the classes. I have never experienced a yoga class with music before and I love it.

I have attended Grace’s yoga classes for a few years now and I love her vibrant, energetic teaching style and classes.
In April 2013 I attended Grace’s prenatal yoga classes which I thoroughly enjoyed. The classes encouraged an increased awareness of the body and the child within. There was a focus on good posture, breathing and relaxation. The yoga poses aimed to ease aches and pains during both pregnancy and childbirth I found particularly helpful. The classes promoted a positive, natural experience and the atmosphere of support in the classes was very valuable.
Most recently I have attended Grace’s Mums and Bubs yoga classes. The classes are relaxed and fun, with freedom for mums to do whatever they need, to look after their babies. The classes are great for new mums to get out of the house, whilst focusing on getting the body back into shape. Most importantly Grace reminds us to take the time to breathe and relax!

Prenatal yoga has been an absolute highlight of my pregnancy. I look forward to the classes every week. Spending that time to stretch and flex while contemplating the new life within is such a special experience.
Physically I believe these classes have helped immensely- I haven’t experienced any of the late pregnancy back troubles and still feel quite mobile. As I head into the next stage of motherhood for a first time mum I am feeling calm and prepared for the labour journey knowing that I have been equipped with positions and breathing techniques to assist me and inner strength to deal with the unexpected.
It has been invaluable to have learnt from the experiences of others in the class.
Thank you Grace- it has been so amazing to have been able to participate in these courses.

Thank you Grace for running a pregnancy yoga course this June, I was very excited about being able to take part in the course in my 2nd trimester and enjoy every minute of the class. It has been an empowering and amazing experience for me and my bump.
As this is my third pregnancy, to be able to practice pregnancy yoga once again has been very special and important to me as this is the only real time I get to really think about my pregnancy, relax and enjoy this miraculous journey. The support not only from yourself as our instructor, and meeting other pregnant women on the same journey has been so valuable. The environment that you create is inspirational!
Thank you so much for all your support and energy.

Pregnancy yoga with Grace is a perfect time for me to relax. The classes enable me to focus on breathing techniques and have taught me positions to assist with labour. Most of all, I have enjoyed connecting with my precious bub.

Prior to starting Grace’s classes, I had not done yoga. Over the last couple of years Grace has provided good guidance in teaching yoga to a beginner and now through to an intermediate level. I feel much more confident and capable in the class especially now as I can work on improving the technical side with Grace’s help.
Over the period of attending I have improved my flexibility and core strength and have found a better overall feeling of fitness. Combining yoga as the base motivation with additional exercise like walking and swimming and a good diet has certainly helped me find healthy lifestyle choice.

The first time I attended a yoga class was at Grace’s general Vinyasa class. I had always been curious about yoga but I never really felt confident about going to classes until I moved to Hedland. Yoga was a lot more challenging than I thought. I really liked Grace’s style of teaching. She would check my positions and gently correct me if I wasn’t doing it right. Another great thing about Grace’s classes is that they are suitable for any level of yoga-beginners or advanced. Grace always pushes me to achieve my potential but will always give me an alternative if I am struggling. I also really enjoy the breathing techniques that accompany the positions. This really helps me to stay relaxed and focused and I feel very energised after the class. The class always ends with some quiet meditation and it’s great to dedicate some time to this as it can be difficult to find the time to meditate in our busy lives.
I have also attended Grace’s pre natal yoga classes and her yoga in the park for mums. The pre natal yoga was fantastic. I used some of the yoga positions when I was in labour. It was also great to get to know other pregnant women too and share our pregnancy journey. Yoga in the park is so relaxing. It’s great to be able to do yoga outside. The kids can come and play and we can really focus on yoga. It’s so important to keep yoga up after childbirth.
If you are considering trying yoga, I would highly recommend Grace’s classes. Whether you have been doing yoga for years or haven’t done any yoga at all, you will really get something out of Yoga with Grace. Not only are her classes beneficial to my physical health but also my emotional and spiritual health.

I enjoy the relaxing poses like dead bug and lotus flower and also the challenging poses like bridge and camel. I love working as a team to create yoga sculptures and also creating my own sequences because I need to think about poses that will flow together.

Grace invites and guides all levels of ability through a flowing class that grows in many ways from week to week.
Grace is generous with her time, energy and spirit. I look forward to every Yoga With Grace class and come out of each one feeling renewed and grounded.
